shipping outside the United States).
What is the length of the Warranty Periods:

(including but not limited to attempted warranty

and/or alteration/removal of the serial
number).
What to do if you think your Product is
eligible for warranty service:
Report your issue to either our Customer
Service Hotline at 1-877-BROTHER (1-877276-8437) or to a Brother Authorized Service
Center within the applicable warranty
period. Supply Brother or the Brother
Authorized Service Center with a copy of your
dated bill of sale showing that this Product was
purchased within the U.S. For the name of
local Brother Authorized Service Center(s),
call 1-877-BROTHER (1-877-276-8437) or
visit www.brother-usa.com.
What Brother will ask you to do:
After contacting Brother or a Brother
Authorized Service Center, you may be
required to deliver (by hand if you prefer) or
send the Product properly packaged, freight
prepaid, to the Authorized Service Center
together with a photocopy of your bill of sale.
You are responsible for the cost of
shipping, packing product, and insurance
(if you desire). You are also responsible for
loss or damage to this Product in shipping.
What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items is covered by this
warranty and if you first reported the problem
to Brother or an Authorized Service Center
within the applicable warranty period, Brother
or its Authorized Service Center will repair or
replace the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items at no
charge to you for parts or labor. The decision
as to whether to repair or replace the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items is made by Brother in its sole
Brother® One-Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service
(USA Only)
discretion. Brother reserves the right to supply
a refurbished or remanufactured replacement
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items and use refurbished
parts provided such replacement products
conform to the manufacturer’s specifications
for new product/parts. The repaired or
replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be
returned to you freight prepaid or made
available for you to pick up at a conveniently
located Authorized Service Center.
If the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items are not
covered by this warranty (either stage), you
will be charged for shipping the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items back to you and charged for
any service and/or replacement parts/products
at Brother’s then current published rates.
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only) and
exclusive remedies under this warranty.
What happens when Brother elects to
replace your Machine:
When a replacement Machine is authorized by
Brother, and you have delivered the Machine
to an Authorized Service Center, the
Authorized Service Center will provide you with
a replacement Machine after receiving one
from Brother. If you are dealing directly with
Brother’s Express Exchange Service Brother
will send to you a replacement Machine
shipped for receipt within two business days,
with the understanding that you will, after
receipt of the replacement Machine, supply the
required proof of purchase information,
together with the Machine that Brother agreed
to replace. You are then expected to pack the
Machine that Brother agreed to replace in the
package from the replacement Machine and
return it to Brother using the pre-paid freight bill
supplied by Brother in accordance with the
instructions provided by Brother. Since you will
be in possession of two machines, Brother will
require that you provide a valid major credit
card number. Brother will issue a hold against
the credit card account number that you
provide until Brother receives your original
Product and determines that your original
Product is entitled to warranty coverage. Your
credit card will be charged up to the cost of a
new Product only if: (i) you do not return your
original Product to Brother within five (5)
business days; (ii) the problems with your
original Product are not covered by the limited
warranty; (iii) the proper packaging instructions
are not followed and has caused damage to
the product; or (iv) the warranty period on your
original Product has expired or has not been
sufficiently validated with a copy of the proof of
purchase (bill of sale). The replacement
Machine you receive (even if refurbished or
remanufactured) will be covered by the
balance of the limited warranty period
remaining on the original Product, plus an
additional thirty (30) days. You will keep the
replacement Machine that is sent to you and
your original Machine shall become the
property of Brother. Retain your original
Accessory Items and a copy of the return
freight bill, signed by the courier.
Limitations:
Brother is not responsible for damage to or
loss of any equipment, media, programs or
data related to the use of this Product. Except
for the repair or replacement as described
above, Brother shall not be liable for any
direct, indirect, incidental or consequential
damages or specific relief. Because some
states do not allow the exclusion or limitation
of consequential or incidental damages, the
above limitation may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN LIEU OF ALL
OTHER WARRANTIES, WRITTEN OR
ORAL,
WHETHER
EXPRESSED
BY
AFFIRMATION, PROMISE, DESCRIPTION,
DRAWING, MODEL OR SAMPLE. ANY AND
ALL WARRANTIES OTHER THAN THIS
ONE, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY
DISCLAIMED.
„ This Limited Warranty is the only warranty
that Brother is giving for this Product. It is
the final expression and the exclusive and
only statement of Brother’s obligations to
you. It replaces all other agreements and
understandings that you may have with
Brother or its representatives.
„ This warranty gives you certain rights and
you may also have other rights that may
vary from state to state.
„ This Limited Warranty (and Brother’s
obligation to you) may not be changed in
any way unless you and Brother sign the
same piece of paper in which we (1) refer
to this Product and your bill of sale date, (2)
describe the change to this warranty and
(3) agree to make that change.
Important: We recommend that you keep all
original packing materials, in the event that
you ship this Product.

BROTHER MULTIFUNCTION CENTER / FAX MACHINE
LIMITED WARRANTY
(Canada only)
Pursuant to the limited warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase for labour and parts, Brother
International Corporation (Canada) Ltd. (“Brother”), or its Authorized Service Centres, will repair
or replace (at Brother's sole discretion) this MFC/Fax machine free of charge if defective in
material or workmanship. This warranty applies only to products purchased and used in Canada.
This limited Warranty does not include cleaning, consumables (including, without limitation, ink
cartridges, print cartridges, print rolls, thermal paper rolls, toner cartridges, drum units, OPC
belts, fixing units, print heads, paper feed rollers, transfer rolls, cleaning rollers, waste toner
packs, oil bottles) or damage caused by accident, neglect, misuse or improper installation or
operation, any damage caused from service, maintenance, modifications, or tampering by
anyone other than a Brother Authorized Service Representative, or if shipped out of the country.
The use of supplies or consumable items that are non-Brother products may void your warranty. This limited
warranty ceases when this machine is rented, sold, or otherwise disposed of.
Operation of the MFC/Fax machine in excess of the specifications or with the Serial Number or Rating Label
removed shall be deemed abuse and all repairs thereafter shall be the sole liability of the end-user/purchaser.
In order to obtain warranty service, the MFC/Fax machine must be delivered or shipped freight
prepaid by the end-user/purchaser to a “Brother” Authorized Service Centre, together with your
Canadian Proof of Purchase in the form of a Sales Receipt.
When shipping or transporting your MFC/Fax machine, please refer to your Operation
Manual for the proper packaging procedures.
For Laser units: Failure to remove the Toner Cartridge (and Toner Drum Unit, waste toner
packs or oil bottles on applicable models) during shipping or transport will cause severe
damage to the Laser MFC/Fax machine and will void the Warranty.
For inkjet units: (When shipping your Inkjet MFC/Fax machine remove the ink cartridges and replace them with
the original protective parts. If original protective parts are not available, leave ink cartridges installed. Please
avoid shipping the unit without original protective parts or ink cartridges.) Damage to your print head resulting from
packing the Inkjet MFC/Fax machine without the ink cartridges or the protective parts will void your warranty.
Improper packaging may cause severe damage to the machine during shipping and will void the warranty.
BROTHER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED
INCLUDING,
WITHOUT
LIMITATIONS,
ANY
IMPLIED
WARRANTIES
OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, EXCEPT TO THE
EXTENT THAT ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY LAW CANNOT BE VALIDLY WAIVED.
No oral or written information, advice or representation provided by Brother, its Authorized
Service Centres, Distributors, Dealers, Agents or employees, shall create another warranty
or modify this warranty. The warranty states Brother's entire liability and your exclusive
remedy against Brother for any failure of the MFC/Fax machine to operate properly.
Neither Brother nor anyone else involved in the development, production, or delivery of this
MFC/Fax machine shall be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary, or
punitive damages, including lost profits, arising from the use of or inability to use the product, even
if advised by the end user/purchaser of the possibility of such damages. Since some Provinces do
not allow the above limitation of liability, such limitation, may not apply to you.
This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other
rights which vary from Province to Province.
Warranty Service is available at Brother Authorized
Service Centres throughout Canada.

Chapter 2
Acceptable paper and
other print media
The print quality can be affected by the type
of paper you are using in the machine.
To get the best print quality for the settings
you have chosen, always set the Paper Type
to match the type of paper you load.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated
paper), glossy paper, transparencies and
envelopes.
We recommend testing various paper types
before buying large quantities.
For best results, use Brother paper.
„ When you print on inkjet paper (coated
paper), transparencies and photo paper,
be sure to choose the proper print media
in the ‘Basic’ tab of the printer driver or in
the Paper Type setting of the machine’s
menu. (See Paper Type on page 24.)
„ When you print on Brother Photo paper,
load one extra sheet of the same photo
paper in the paper tray. An extra sheet has
been included in the paper package for
this purpose.
„ When you use transparencies or photo
paper, remove each sheet at once to
prevent smudging or paper jams.
„ Avoid touching the printed surface of the
paper immediately after printing; the
surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.
16
Recommended print media
2
To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See table below.)
We recommend using ‘3M Transparency
Film’ when you print on transparencies.

„ Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and
away from moisture, direct sunlight and
heat.
„ Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side of
photo paper. Load photo paper with the
shiny side facing down.
Up to 50 sheets of Letter, Legal or A4 20 lb
(80 g/m2) paper.
„ Transparencies and photo paper must be
picked up from the output paper tray cover
one page at a time to avoid smudging.
„ Avoid touching either side of
transparencies because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next
document. Use only transparencies
recommended for inkjet printing.
„ You can only print on both sides of the
paper with PC printing. (See Printing for
Windows® in the Software User’s Guide
on the CD-ROM.)

Receiving a Fax
Receive modes
Choose the correct Receive Mode
The correct Receive mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber
services (Voice Mail, Distinctive Ring, etc.) you have (or will be using) on the same line as the
Brother machine.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring” but different telephone companies may have other names for this
service such as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call,
Data Ident-A-Call, Smart Ring and SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing. See Distinctive Ring
on page 55 for instruction on setting up your machine using this feature.
Will you be using Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine, there is a strong possibility
that Voice Mail and the Brother machine will conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls. See
Voice Mail on page 54 for instructions on setting up your machine using this service.
Will you be using a Telephone Answering Device on the same telephone line as your Brother
machine?
Your external telephone answering device (TAD) will automatically answer every call. Voice messages are
stored on the external TAD and fax messages are printed. Choose External TAD as your receive mode.
See External TAD on page 42.
Will you be using your Brother machine on a dedicated fax line?
Your machine automatically answers every call as a fax. Choose Fax Only as your receive mode. See
Fax only on page 42.
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
The Fax/Tel receive mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the
same line. Choose Fax/Tel as your receive mode. See Fax/Tel on page 42.
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine
with the Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your receive mode. You control the telephone line and must answer every call
yourself. See Manual on page 42.

Fax/Tel mode helps you automatically
manage incoming calls, by recognizing
whether they are fax or voice calls and
handling them in one of the following ways:
„ Faxes will be automatically received.
„ Voice calls will start the F/T ring to tell you
to pick up the line. The F/T ring is a fast
pseudo/double-ring made by your
machine.
(Also see F/T Ring Time (Fax/Tel mode only)
on page 43 and Ring Delay on page 43.)

Manual mode turns off all automatic
answering functions unless you are using the

To receive a fax in manual mode lift the
handset of an external telephone or press

repeating beeps), press Black Start or
Color Start and choose Receive. You can
also use the Easy Receive feature to receive
faxes by lifting a handset on the same line as

F/T ring time setting. If you hear the F/T ring
it means that you have a voice caller on the

Chapter 7
Telephone services
7
Your machine supports the Caller ID and
Distinctive Ring subscriber telephone
services that some telephone companies
offer.
Features like Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call
Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, answering
services, alarm systems or other custom
features on one telephone line may affect the
way your machine works. If you have Voice
Mail on your telephone line, please read the
following carefully.
Voice Mail
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone
line as your Brother machine, Voice Mail and
the Brother machine will conflict with each
other when receiving incoming calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Brother
machine is set to answer after 2 rings, then
your Brother machine will answer first. This
will prevent callers from being able to leave a
message in your Voice Mail.
Similarly, if your Brother machine is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Voice Mail is set
to answer after 2 rings, then your Voice Mail
will answer first. This will prevent your Brother
machine from being able to receive an
incoming fax, since Voice Mail cannot
transfer the incoming fax back to the Brother
machine.
To avoid conflicts between your Brother
machine and your voice mail service, do one
of the following:
54
7
Get the Distinctive Ring service from your
telephone company. Distinctive Ring is a
feature of your Brother machine that allows a
person with one line to receive fax and voice
calls through two different phone numbers on
that one line. Brother uses the term
‘Distinctive Ring,’ but telephone companies
market the service under a variety of names,
such as Custom Ringing, Personalized Ring,
Smart Ring, RingMaster, Ident-A-Ring, IdentA-Call, Data Ident-A-Call, Teen Ring, and
SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing.
This service establishes a second telephone
number on the same line as your existing
telephone number, and each number has its
own ring pattern. Typically, the original
number rings with the standard ring pattern
and is used for receiving voice calls, and the
second number rings with a different ring
pattern and is used for receiving faxes. (See
Distinctive Ring on page 55.)
OR
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to
“Manual.” Manual Mode requires that you
answer every incoming call if you want to be
able to receive a fax. If the incoming call is a
telephone call, then complete the call as you
normally would. If you hear fax sending tones
you must transfer the call to the Brother
machine. (See Using external and extension
telephones on page 62.) Unanswered fax
and voice calls will go to your Voice Mail. (To
set the machine in MANUAL Mode, see
Choose the correct Receive Mode
on page 40.)

Distinctive Ring
7
7
If you have Voice Mail on the telephone line
that you will install your new machine on,
there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail
and the machine will conflict with each other
while receiving incoming calls. However, the
Distinctive Ring feature allows you to use
more than one number on your line, so
both Voice Mail and the machine can work
together without any problems. If each one
has a separate telephone number, neither will
interfere with the other's operations.
Distinctive Ring is a function of your Brother
machine that allows a person with one line to
receive fax and voice calls through two
different phone numbers on that one line.
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring,” but
telephone companies market the service
under a variety of names, such as Smart
Ring, Ring Master or Ident-a-Ring. This
service establishes a second telephone
number on the same line as your existing
telephone number, and each number has its
own ring pattern. Typically, the original
number rings with the standard ring pattern
and is used for receiving voice calls, and the
second number rings with a different ring
pattern and is used for receiving faxes.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring
service from the telephone company, you will
need to follow the directions on next page to
‘register’ the new Distinctive Ring pattern
they give you. This is so your machine can
recognize its incoming calls.
Note
7
Note
• You must pay for your telephone
company's Distinctive Ring service before
you program the machine to work with it.
You can change or cancel the Distinctive
Ring pattern at any time. You can switch it
off temporarily, and turn it back on later.
When you get a new fax number, make
sure you reset this feature.
• Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.
What does your telephone company's
‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
Do you have Voice Mail?
7
Your telephone company's Distinctive Ring
service allows you to have more than one
number on the same telephone line. If you
need more than one telephone number, it
is cheaper than paying for an extra line.
Each telephone number has its own
distinctive ring pattern, so you will know
which telephone number is ringing. This is
one way you can have a separate telephone
number for your machine.
What does Brother's ‘Distinctive Ring’
do?
7
The Brother machine has a Distinctive Ring
feature that allows you to use your machine to
take full advantage of the telephone
company's Distinctive Ring service. The new
telephone number on your line can just
receive faxes.

Chapter 7
Before you choose the ring pattern to
register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring
pattern with the machine. Some ring patterns
cannot be registered. The ring patterns below
are supported by your Brother machine.
Register the one your telephone company
gives you.

Registering the Distinctive Ring
pattern
Very Important !
After you have set the Distinctive Ring feature
to On, your Distinctive Ring number will
receive faxes automatically. The receive
mode is automatically set to Manual and you
cannot change it to another receive mode
while Distinctive Ring is set to On. This
ensures the Brother machine will only answer
the Distinctive Ring number and not interfere
when your main telephone number is called.

Caller ID
7
The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller
ID subscriber service offered by many local
telephone companies. Call your telephone
company for details. This service shows the
telephone number, or name if it is available,
of your caller as the line rings.
After a few rings, the LCD shows the
telephone number of your caller (and name, if
available). Once you answer a call, the Caller
ID information disappears from the LCD, but
the call information stays stored in the Caller
ID memory.
You can view the list or choose one of these
numbers to fax to, add to Speed Dial or delete
from the history. (See Caller ID history
on page 66.)
„ You can see the first 18 characters of the
number (or name).
„ The # Unavailable message means
the call originated outside your Caller ID
service area.
„ The Private Call message means the
caller has intentionally blocked
transmission of information.
You can print a list of the Caller ID information
received by your machine. (See How to print
a report on page 74.)
Note
• This feature may not be available in
certain areas of the USA and Canada.
• The Caller ID service varies with different
carriers. Call your local telephone
company to find out about the kind of
service available in your area.

When returning calls from the caller ID history
your machine will automatically dial “1” plus
the area code for all calls. If your local dialing
plan requires that the “1” not be used for calls
within your area code enter your area code in
this setting. With the area code setting, calls
returned from the caller ID history to your
area code will be dialed using 10 digits (area
code + 7-digit number). If your dialing plan
does not follow the standard 1 + area code +
7-digit number dialing system for calling
outside your area code, you may experience
problems returning calls automatically from
the caller ID history. If this is not the
procedure followed by your dialing plan, you

Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
You may choose to connect an external
answering device. However, when you have
an external TAD on the same telephone line
as the machine, the TAD answers all calls
and the machine ‘listens’ for fax calling (CNG)
tones. If it hears them, the machine takes
over the call and receives the fax. If it does
not hear CNG tones, the machine lets the
TAD continue playing your outgoing message
so your caller can leave you a voice
message.
The TAD must answer within four rings (the
recommended setting is two rings). The
machine cannot hear CNG tones until the
TAD has answered the call, and with four
rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds of CNG
tones left for the fax ‘handshake’. Make sure
you carefully follow the instructions in this
guide for recording your outgoing message.
We do not recommend using the toll saver
feature on your external answering machine if
it exceeds five rings.

Connections
Note
• If you do not receive all your faxes,
shorten the Ring Delay setting on your
external TAD.
• If You Subscribe to your Telephone
company's Distinctive Ring Service:
You may connect an external TAD to a
separate wall jack only if you subscribe to
your telephone company's Distinctive
Ring service, have registered the
distinctive ring pattern on your machine,
and use that number as a fax number. The
recommended setting is at least four rings
on the external TAD when you have the
telephone company's Distinctive Ring
Service. You cannot use the Toll Saver
setting.
7
The external TAD must be plugged into the
jack labeled EXT. Your machine cannot work
properly if you plug the TAD into a wall jack
(unless you are using Distinctive Ring).
a
Plug the telephone line cord from the
telephone wall jack into the jack labeled
LINE.
b
Remove the protective cap (1) from the
jack labeled EXT, and then plug the
telephone line cord from the external
TAD into the EXT. jack. (Make sure this
cord is connected to the TAD at the
TAD's telephone line jack, and not its
handset jack.)
• If You Do Not Subscribe to Distinctive
Ring Service:
7
You must plug your TAD into the EXT.
jack of your machine. If your TAD is
plugged into a wall jack, both your
machine and the TAD will try to control the
telephone line. (See the illustration

Chapter 7
Recording outgoing message
(OGM) on an external TAD
Special line considerations
7
Timing is important in recording this
message. The message sets up the ways to
handle both manual and automatic fax
reception.
a
b
c
Record 5 seconds of silence at the
beginning of your message. (This allows
your machine time to listen for the fax
CNG tones of automatic transmissions
before they stop.)
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
End your 20-second message by giving
your Fax Receive Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example:
‘After the beep, leave a message or
send a fax by pressing l 5 1 and Start.’
Note
We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5-second silence because the
machine cannot hear fax tones over a
resonant or loud voice. You may try
omitting this pause, but if your machine
has trouble receiving, then you must
re-record the OGM to include it.
Roll over telephone lines
7
A roll over telephone system is a group of two
or more separate telephone lines that pass
incoming calls to each other if they are busy.
The calls are usually passed down or ‘rolled
over’ to the next available telephone line in a
preset order.
Your machine can work in a roll over system
as long as it is the last number in the
sequence, so the call cannot roll away. Do not
put the machine on any of the other numbers;
when the other lines are busy and a second
fax call is received, the fax call will be sent to
a line that does not have a fax machine. Your
machine will work best on a dedicated
line.
Two-line telephone system
7
A two-line telephone system is nothing more
than two separate telephone numbers on the
same wall outlet. The two telephone numbers
can be on separate jacks (RJ11) or mixed into
one jack (RJ14). Your machine must be
plugged into an RJ11 jack. RJ11 and RJ14
jacks may be equal in size and appearance
and both may contain four wires (black, red,
green, yellow). To test the type of jack, plug in
a two-line telephone and see if it can access
both lines. If it can, you must separate the line
for your machine. (See Easy Receive
on page 44.)
Converting telephone wall outlets
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11
jack. The first two ways may require help from
the telephone company. You can change the
wall outlets from one RJ14 jack to two RJ11
jacks. Or you can have an RJ11 wall outlet
installed and slave or jump one of the
telephone numbers to it.
60
7
7
Telephone Services and External devices
d
The third way is the easiest: Buy a triplex
adapter. You can plug a triplex adapter into
an RJ14 outlet. It separates the wires into two
separate RJ11 jacks (Line 1, Line 2) and a
third RJ14 jack (Lines 1 and 2). If your
machine is on Line 1, plug the machine into
L1 of the triplex adapter. If your machine is on
Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triple adapter.
Triplex Adapter
Plug one end of the second telephone
line cord for your TAD into the L2 jack of
the two-line TAD. Plug the other end into
the EXT. jack on the left side of the
machine.

Installing machine, external two-line
TAD and two-line telephone
When you are installing an external two-line
telephone answering device (TAD) and a
two-line telephone, your machine must be
isolated on one line at both the wall jack and
at the TAD. The most common connection is
to put the machine on Line 2, which is
explained in the following steps. The back of
the two-line TAD must have two telephone
jacks: one labeled L1 or L1/L2, and the other
labeled L2. You will need at least three
telephone line cords, the one that came with
your machine and two for your external twoline TAD. You will need a fourth line cord if
you add a two-line telephone.
a
Put the two-line TAD and the two-line
telephone next to your machine.
b
Plug one end of the telephone line cord
for your machine into the L2 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the LINE jack on the back of the
machine.
c
4
Plug one end of the first telephone line
cord for your TAD into the L1 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the L1 or L1/L2 jack of the two-line TAD.
7
You can keep two-line telephones on other
wall outlets as always. There are two ways to
add a two-line telephone to the machine's
wall outlet. You can plug the telephone line
cord from the two-line telephone into the
L1+L2 jack of the triplex adapter. Or you can
plug the two-line telephone into the TEL jack
of the two-line TAD.
Multi-line connections (PBX)
7
7
We suggest you ask the company who
installed your PBX to connect your machine.
If you have a multi line system we suggest
you ask the installer to connect the unit to the
last line on the system. This prevents the
machine being activated each time the
system receives telephone calls. If all
incoming calls will be answered by a
switchboard operator we recommend that
you set the Receive Mode to Manual.
We cannot guarantee that your machine will
operate properly under all circumstances
when connected to a PBX. Any difficulties
with sending or receiving faxes should be
reported first to the company who handles
your PBX.

Dialing Access codes and

Sometimes you may want to choose from
several long distance carriers when you
make a call. Rates may vary depending on
the time and destination. To take advantage
of low rates, you can store the access codes
of long-distance carriers and credit card
numbers as Speed Dial numbers. You can
store these long dialing sequences by
dividing them and setting them up as
separate Speed Dial numbers in any
combination. You can even include manual
dialing using the dial pad. (See Storing
Speed Dial numbers on page 66.)
g
Press Black Start or Color Start.
You will dial ‘555-7000 ’.

To temporarily change a number, you can
substitute part of the number with manual
dialing using the dial pad. For example, to
change the number to 555-7001 you could
press
(Speed Dial), choose Search,
press 03 and then press 7001 using the dial
pad.
Note
If you must wait for another dial tone or
signal at any point in the dialing sequence,
create a pause in the number by pressing

3.5-second delay.
For example, you might have stored ‘555 ’ on

„ (memory card users)
Your machine is designed to be compatible
with modern digital camera image files,
memory cards and USB Flash memory drive;
however, please read the points below to
avoid errors:
„ The image file extension must be .JPG
(Other image file extensions like .JPEG,
.TIF, .GIF and so on will not be
recognized).
„ Walk-up PhotoCapture Center® printing
must be performed separately from
PhotoCapture Center® operations using
the PC. (Simultaneous operation is not
available.)
„ IBM Microdrive™ is not compatible with
the machine.
„ The machine can read up to 999 files
(including the folder inside media) on a
memory card or USB Flash memory drive.
„ CompactFlash® Type II is not supported.
Your machine is designed to read memory
cards that have been formatted by a digital
camera.
When a digital camera formats a memory
card it creates a special folder into which it
copies image data. If you need to modify
the image data stored on a memory card
with your PC, we recommend that you do
not modify the folder structure created by
the digital camera. When saving new or
modified image files to the memory card
we also recommend you use the same
folder your digital camera uses. If the data
is not saved to the same folder, the
machine may not be able to read the file or
print the image.
„ (USB Flash memory drive users)
This machine supports USB Flash
memory drives that have been formatted
by Windows®.
„ This product supports xD-Picture Card™

when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct receiving mode for your setup.
(See Choose the correct Receive Mode on page 40.) Check for a dial tone. If
possible, call your machine to hear it answer. If there is still no answer, check that
the telephone line cord is plugged into the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack
of the machine. If there is no ringing when you call your machine, ask your
telephone company to check the line.
Receiving Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine.
Make sure the machine is in the correct receiving mode for your setup.
(See Receive mode settings on page 43.)

130
Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance
Sending Faxes (continued)
Difficulty
Suggestions
Poor fax send quality.
Try changing your resolution to Fine or S.Fine. Make a copy to check your
machine's scanner operation. If the copy quality is not good, clean the scanner.
(See Cleaning the scanner on page 148.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid
on the glass strip. Clean the glass strip.
(See Cleaning the scanner on page 148.)
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine ‘Hears’ a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Easy Receive is set to On, your machine is more sensitive to sounds. It may
mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the line as a fax machine calling
and respond with fax receiving tones. Deactivate the machine by pressing
Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by turning Easy Receive to Off.
(See Easy Receive on page 44.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an extension telephone, press your Fax Receive Code (the
factory setting is l 5 1). If you answer on an external telephone (connected to the
EXT jack), press Start to receive the fax. When your machine answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Voice Mail, an alarm system or
other custom feature on a single telephone line with your machine, it may create
a problem sending or receiving faxes.
For example: If you subscribe to Call Waiting or some other custom service and
its signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax,
the signal can temporarily interrupt or disrupt the faxes. Brother's ECM feature
should help overcome this problem. This condition is related to the telephone
system industry and is common to all devices that send and receive information
on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is
crucial to your business, a separate telephone line with no custom features is
recommended.
Copying Difficulties
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot make a copy.
Make sure that the Copy
key is illuminated.
(See Entering Copy mode on page 78.)
Poor copy results when using the
ADF.
Try using the scanner glass. (See Using the scanner glass on page 21.)
Vertical black lines or streaks
appear in copies.
Vertical black lines or streaks on copies are typically caused by dirt or correction
fluid on the scanner. Clean the glass strip and scanner glass and the white bar and
white plastic above them. (See Cleaning the scanner on page 148.)
Fit to Page does not work properly.
Make sure the document is not skewed on the scanner glass.

Replacing the ink cartridges
b
B
Press down to unlock the release lever
and take out the ink cartridge for the
color shown on the LCD.
B
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
monitors the level of ink in each of the 4
cartridges. When the machine detects an ink
cartridge is running out of ink, the machine
will tell you with a message on the LCD.
The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
correct order.
Even though the machine tells you that an ink
cartridge is empty, there will be a small
amount of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is
necessary to keep some ink in the ink
cartridge to prevent air from drying out and
damaging the print head assembly.
CAUTION
Brother strongly recommends that you do
not refill the ink cartridges provided with
your machine. We also strongly
recommend that you continue to use only
Genuine Brother Brand replacement ink
cartridges. Use or attempted use of
potentially incompatible ink and/or
cartridges in the Brother machine may
cause damage to the machine and/or may
result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our
warranty coverage does not apply to any
problem that is caused by the use of
unauthorized third party ink and/or
cartridges. To protect your investment and
obtain premium performance from the
Brother machine, we strongly recommend
the use of Genuine Brother Supplies.

example Black, the LCD may ask you to
verify that it was a brand new one (for
example, Did You Change
Black).
For each new cartridge you installed,
press 1 (Yes) to automatically reset the
ink dot counter for that color. If the ink
cartridge you installed is not a brand new
one, be sure to press 2 (No).
• If the LCD shows No Cartridge or
Cannot Detect after you install the ink
cartridges, check that the ink cartridges
are installed properly.
WARNING
If ink gets in your eyes, wash them out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
146
Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance
CAUTION
DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do
not need to replace them. If you do so, it
may reduce the ink quantity and the
machine will not know the quantity of ink left
in the cartridge.
DO NOT touch the cartridge insertion slots.
If you do so, the ink may stain your skin.
If ink gets on your skin or clothing
immediately wash it off with soap or
detergent.
If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation.
Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in
the machine and use it up within six months
of installation. Use unopened ink cartridges
by the expiration date written on the
cartridge package.
